A waiter by the name of Paul placed the menus on the table and disappeared. After being in the restaurant for 45 minutes, i... More

We really enjoyed the food and the atmosphere! Service was excellent! Excellent presentation of food. I had the Chesapeake blue crab tea and it so interesting to watch how it was prepared at the table. It was like a chemistry experiment.

Description
As the only Forbes Five Star rated restaurant in DC, Plume at The Jefferson, serves as a discreet and elegant backdrop to the artistry of our skilled culinary staff. Plume's classic dishes are inspired both by the gardens of Monticello and the refined palate of Thomas Jefferson. Dishes are expertly executed with lighter, contemporary finishing touches that appeal to today's enlightened palates.

Accompanying Plume's innovative menu, the wine program features more than 1,300 labels with some dating back to 1720. Recipient of Wine Spectator's Best of Award of Excellence, we invite you to savor a bottle of the restaurant's more than 50 vintages, including some that Jefferson himself enjoyed in his time, as well as newer wines he might select were he alive today.
